First donation to Million Metres project made
- 14 December 2016
Forest Gourmet is pleased to say we've made our first donation towards planting more trees. Although it is an important part of the brand to spend 10% of profits on helping plant more trees, given that we have not yet made any profit we still wanted to start assisting a worthy project.
Million Metres Streams Project has the aim of planting a million metres of stream banks around New Zealand. The dual benefit of more trees being planted and helping to improve the quality of New Zealand's waterways fits right in with one of the original ideas behind Forest Gourmet, so making our first donation to the Million Metres project is a great match.
Million Metres then support local community groups around the country where volunteers carry out the actual planting, with the trees being provided via the donations received by the project. Our first donation has gone towards helping a planting area in Canterbury, and we look forward to supporting further areas in future.
